Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has secured a contract to supply six Gloria reachstackers to Sitrans Servicios Integrados de Transportes Limitada (Sitrans), part of the Ultramar Group. 

The order was booked in Cargotec's Q4 2018 order intake and delivery of the machines is scheduled to take place during Q1 of 2019.

Three of the machines will be delivered to the company's container terminal in Valparaiso and three to their terminal in San Antonio, both of which are located on the Pacific coast in central Chile. The new Kalmar Gloria reachstackers form part of a fleet renewal program and will help Sitrans address a need for improved efficiency driven by growing demand at both locations. They will join a large existing fleet of Kalmar machines including empty container handlers already operated by the company.

The Kalmar G Generation reachstacker has been designed in collaboration with operators, maintenance personnel, and production and terminal managers from around the world. It includes a wide range of features that increase operator efficiency, including the ergonomic EGO cabin with superb visibility and intuitive controls, as well as advanced diagnostics to make daily checks and fault resolution quicker and easier.

The machines delivered to Sitrans will also include a number of features designed to increase operational safety. These include the Kalmar Reverse Warning System to give drivers greater visibility while reversing. The reachstackers will also be fitted with Kalmar Insight, a performance management tool that provides a clear overview of fleet operations to improve transparency and minimize unplanned downtime.
